The Summon

The Summon

Original Fantasy Portal Fantasy / Isekai School Life Male Lead Female Lead Multiple Lead Characters Magic Profanity High Fantasy

The 18-year old Jonathan from modern earth was summoned as a familiar by an aspiring common born sorceress. First, they must survive the Royal School of Magic in the Kingdom of Theron with the help of unlikely allies they find in some of the teachers in this noble dominated society. Together they will have to master difficult challenges, learn to trust each other and survive the many adventures that lie in their future.

Inspired, at least in the beginning by an unfamiliar summon, a fiction I cannot find anymore. It was here on Royalroad.

I will try to release one chapter every 4 days, but this schedule could change. What I will do is communicate any changes in this, at least if I am able to. After one week of no updates, I will post a status update for certain.

I will finish this book, or at least give it a somewhat satisfactory ending. But I will try, together with you, to make it as successful a journey as I am able to.

A young man's desperate search for his lost sister collides with the ghosts of their infamous father's past. A bargain struck with the most feared outlaw in the country might win his sister's freedom... and cost him his soul.

In one night, Van Delano lost everything.

His parents murdered. His home burned. He and his younger sister hunted for crimes his father had committed before they were even born, and separated from each other in the chaos. 

Nine years later, Van is still alive, but his sister is still missing.

Now living on the edge of the law himself, and surviving on the merit of his infamous heritage and his own swiftly growing skill at the quick draw, Van doggedly pursues any rumor of his sister's whereabouts.

At last it appears he's found the end of the trail... and it leads straight to Nine-Fingered Nan, one of the oldest and most feared outlaws in the country.

But Van is determined to get his sister back, no matter the cost.

Even if he's gotta make a deal with the devil herself...

Margrave's Divinity

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Supernatural Male Lead Strong Lead Magic Profanity GameLit Urban Fantasy Dungeon Mythos

Unlike his father and brother, Lyle Margrave wasn't blessed with power when the Towers rose outside of the population centers of the world seventeen years ago. However, with his father imprisoned and his brother killed in the Fall of New York, he is alone in helping his mother to provide for their household and get his sister Helen through her last couple years of college. Quitting his job probably wasn't the smartest move to this end, but he wasn't helping anyone as a mistreated secretary. This is followed by even more bad luck in the form of a beating from an Empowered directly outside his girlfriend's apartment and an ultimatum not to return. 

But then Lyle steps into a Secret Gate on a dangerous whim and a figure from Greek mythology gives him the opportunity to gain the power he needs to make a real difference. Something's strange about his power, though, and if he's not careful, that power could get him killed.

MAD MAGUS: A Tale of Almost Gods

MAD MAGUS: A Tale of Almost Gods

Original Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Supernatural Strong Lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead Profanity Sexual Content Gore High Fantasy

Salemon the Mage. Somehow, the name and the description didn’t fit together. 

But the woodcutter-turned-mage never really was a wielder of magic. He was more of a conduit for the suppressed urges and energies of a collection of almost-gods who had been trapped for millennia.

They do have ambitions for Salemon. Grand plans. World-shaking schemes. Lofty dark or enlightened ideals to achieve, depending on whose turn it is to talk to, or drive, the woodcutter.

But first, they all want to have their divinities back. And have fun.

Rating: MATURE. Gore, Violence, and some settings of a sexual nature.

Bad Harem

Bad Harem

Original Action Adventure Contemporary Martial Arts Harem Supernatural Multiple Lead Characters Anti-Hero Lead Grimdark Profanity Sexual Content Gore Traumatising content Satire Urban Fantasy

This is the serialization of Bad Harem: The Postmodern Adventures of Kill Team One Volume 5. The story is pretty self-contained, so you don't need to go back and read the earlier books, but everyone wants you to. Jennifer Lawrence wants you to. I heard she said she would go on a date with you if you read the whole series. That's just what I heard. I can't confirm.

What's it about?

It's about everybody's favorite gun-slinging, face-punching, machete-chopping, morally bankrupt anti-hero: Sid Hansen. Sid desperately wants to add womanizing to that list of pseudo-adjectives in the last sentence, but he keeps running into the same problem: women hate his guts. He's tried everything, but every time he tries to talk to a hot chick she ends up telling him to get lost. Sometimes they call the police. Worse yet, Sid has run completely out of money, so he can't even pay for it anymore. He's seriously worried he'll never get laid again.

So when a billionaire puts a price on Sid's head and a cadre of sultry sex-pot assassins come looking to collect, Sid comes up with an idea so crass, so absurd, so unabashedly sexist, and so death-defying, that only he would ever have the steel balls required to pull it off...

It will be a disaster.
